Israel Museum Jerusalem 16 Aug - 05 Sep 2012

Waking dream will be showing as part of “720°" and will be installed for three weeks in the Israel Museum‘s Art Garden, side-by-side with works by Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, and Micha Ullman.

Originally comisioned and developed  as part of the Bloomberg Summer at the Roundhouse

Waking Dream is a 360° audio visual experience exploring fleeting moments of intensely surreal dreams, when lulled to sleep in transit.

Bringing together theatre, dance and digital animation, Waking Dream takes us on a disorienting journey through the subconscious of a sleeping commuter.
SDNA makes full use of Ron Arard's unique 360°installation with 3D animation and zoetrope like film sequences.

"Digital studio SDNA have engaged with the possibilities of a 360-degree screen as well as the original function of the Roundhouse as a railway engine shed, to create a work based around the surreal dream of a commuter who has nodded off in transit. Featuring multiples of figures dressed in smart office garb and choreographed to a rhythmical soundtrack reminiscent of rumbling trains, it's visually and aurally gripping.", Time Out
